THE RIO GRANDE GROUP 



NOVEMBER 1-7 • 1934 



HT^HE Rio Grande Painters are a small group 
of younger artists living in the Southwest 
with a distinct preference for the landscape of 
New Mexico and its freedom from inhibitions. 
This same freshness of the great open spaces and 
a complete independence of the urban irrelevan- 
cies which have crept into the art of painting 
are reflected in their work. They are neither a 
society nor a guild; they have no theory of art 
nor way of life to impart to an already too in- 
doctrinated world. Their one claim to a com- 
munal existence is a central post office address 
in Santa Fe. Schooled in different cities and 
circumstances they advocate nevertheless a 
moderate modernism which is the order of the 
day. Each one is affected by the changing 
lights and bleak contours of the desert of New 
Spain. As a group they paint as they please 
and not in imitation of each other.
